Once again you delivered a spectacular dive experience. Our expedition to Malaysia on the islands of Mabul and Sipadan was one of the greatest we have ever undertaken with you.

Your pre trip dive site inspections helped provide another flawless outing. As usual you provided the TOTAL dive adventure.

From top accommodations, to knowledgeable and thoroughly experienced local dive masters, to help with photographic questions, to some of the greatest dives I have ever seen; you did it all.

Your encyclopedic knowledge of our oceans' fishes and corals always adds that extra facet which makes GDE's trips so wonderful.

...I can safely say Sipadan ranks up there with the world's best dive sites. Thanks for providing ANOTHER in a string of 'Once in a lifetime adventure
